Man kept mother’s body in New York state motel room for weeks, police say.

Earlier this month, state police tried to check on Betty Cole, whose family couldn’t get in contact with her, police said in the release. A New York man is accused of strangling his mother in the motel where they lived, keeping her body there for nearly two months and then dumping it in South Carolina, police said Saturday. Charles Cole, 48, of Pleasant Valley has been arraigned on a charge of second-degree murder in connection with the death of his mother, Betty Cole, 76. Cole allegedly stuffed his mother’s body into a plastic bin, put the bin in his car and took it with him to Lodge, South Carolina from the motel in Pleasant Valley, New York, which is located 80 miles north of New York City.

She was sent to Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail. “I find it hard to imagine the circumstances that would lead a son to strangle his mother, but also to live with the body in a motel room and then travel several states away and dump her like trash,” state police Capt. He told the newspaper that workers routinely cleaned the air conditioning filters in each room and there were no indications a body was being housed there. Ryan told Hudson Valley News Network said he didn’t know how the couple kept the body of the mother for seven weeks without sparking any complaints of odor from others staying at the motel.
